Steinberg am Rofan
Branching off into a side valley of Achenkirch, you will reach the quaint village of Steinberg am Rofan, which is rightly called "the most beautiful end of the world". Steinberg am Rofan enjoys an idyllic location at 1,000 metres above sea level. The charming village, which has a population of ca. 300, is a “Tirolean storybook idyll”. Small-scale ski lift, cross-country skiing, hiking, or cycling: The natural beauty of Steinberg offers plenty of active outdoor pursuits. Steinberg is a place that radiates calm and tranquility, making it the perfect choice for those who want to switch off and live life at their own pace.
In 2021, Steinberg became a member of "Tirol’s Mountaineering Villages", a cachet that stands for maintaining traditional values while fostering environmental awareness and sustainable tourism. Visiting the cave of inscriptions on the Schneidjoch is a must-do experience when you travel to Steinberg. In 1957, an eight-line inscription was found carved in the rock near a small spring. To this day, the strange symbols, which probably came from the north Etruscan alphabet, have remained a mystery. Researchers assume the inscription may refer to a holy well.
Steinberg am Rofan is a member of the Mountaineering Villages, an initiative committed to sustainable and gentle development incorporating local communities and its people.
